This will be my first real legit attempt at a lager. I don't do pilsners with the exception of the Dortmunder Export. I thought that was amazing. Then i had this beer. Can i brew this beer with pale malt or do i NEED pilsner? Also does anybody have a solid recipie for a Maibock like the one Smutty makes? Thanks for the help!

I think pilsner malt gives it a more authentic flavor. I also like a lot of Vienna malt in mine. I have a very good recipe. Let me hunt it down and I'll post it for you.

Edit: Here's the recipe -- http://www.math.fsu.edu/~gmizell/recipes/Lenawee_Bock.html

You definitely need pilsner, and maybe 10-30% light Munich and/or Vienna, (Dingemans Munich is great for this.) A touch of aromatic (2-5%) tastes nice, depending on how light in color you want. OG 1.068, about 30 IBU's continental hops, a small amount around 10m and a Bavarian strain like 838 or hellabock.
